"Same day service"

David Fields on 3/9/2014 10:56:23 AM

Review (Tell us Why?: Love your shop! While I live in Central Oregon and I am surrounded by local fly shops I keep going back to your store for the great prices and lightning fast shipping! Thanks for the fantastic service. Rio fly lines are some of the best I have ever fished with.

"275 Grain Short"

briansII on 1/8/2014 10:21:58 AM

Review (Tell us Why?: This line went on a ACR 3wt Trout Spey. The line matches well with the rod, and gives me the ability to toss sinktips on this light spey rod. Nice to see Rio making very light spey lines.

"Skagit Short"

Austin McKnight on 12/12/2013 2:35:32 PM

Review (Tell us Why?: Rio's Skagit Short is one of the most powerful skagit heads on the market. Gotta love saving huge by buying last years closeout model. Gorge Fly Shop does it again delivering a great product at an outlandish closeout price!!

"Skagit Short"

Austin McKnight on 12/12/2013 2:33:27 PM

Review (Tell us Why?: Shopping local with the Gorge Fly Shop has more than one benefit. Not only do they offer great deals, they ship quick and care about the customer. Can't beat the price on these closeout heads either!!

"perfect for 11" Switch-Rods"

Sven Oliver Spethmann on 6/10/2013 12:36:41 PM

Review (Tell us Why?: The 475 gr. Skagit Short on the Helios Switch "11 #7 works perfect and improves even poor casting-abilities ! Join with MOW-sinkers (2,5 interm./ 7,5 T-11 f.e.) and eaven your heavy tubeflies will move with ease. No false and noisy casting, no flipping and whistling Rod-Tip any more !
